Bomber boys begin season in at Best of Best Soccer Tournament

first_imgAfter experiencing the joy of winning a B.C. Soccer Provincial B title during the summer with the Nelson U18 Selects, head coach Keith Williams is preparing to dial it back a little as skipper of the L.V. Rogers Bombers.Williams, with a few of the same crew that won the provincial crown, travels to the Fraser Valley today to compete in the 16-team Best of the Best High School Boy’s Soccer Tournament in Chilliwack.“It’s definitely going to be a rebuilding year,” Williams said Tuesday when asked about the team heading into the 2010 high school boy’s soccer season.“It’s probably the smallest team I’ve had in terms of physical stature I’ve had in years,” added Williams, who took the Bombers to a disappointing 12th place finish with almost the same team that rebounded to win the 2010 Provincial B Cup.LVR returns just seven players from last year’s squad. Along with several graduating seniors, the Bombers are missing the Chopin boys, Jules and Titoun. The Chopin boys decided to move to the Lower Mainland to pursue their soccer careers playing the in Metro League.Heading up the roster is midfielders Luke Mori and Erik Norberg. Other returning players include striker Danny Santano, midfielder Simon Sheppard and defenders John Whelan, Kevin Lewis and Sean Hickson.The Bombers open the tournament Thursday morning against Valleyview of Kamloops. The team completes the opening day round robin draw against G.W. Graham of Chilliwack and Vancouver’s Handsworth Royals.Other teams in the tournament are from Northern B.C., the Fraser Valley, Okanagan and Vancouver regions.The round robin record determines where teams advance into the playoff round.The final is set for 2:15 p.m. Friday.The date of the Chilliwack tournament hit the radar screen much earlier than in previous years, forcing Williams to take a different approach entering the event.“I’m just getting to know a lot of the player’s names so I really don’t now what to expect,” he explained. Andrew Woodward and Bruno Munro, the latter an exchange student for Mexico, have the tough task to replace graduating senior Kean Silverthorn in goal.last_img read more

How Warriors’ big man Jordan Bell plans to get himself back in the mix

first_imgOAKLAND — Hours after Wednesday’s 144-122 win over the Wizards, Warriors’ assistant coach Chris DeMarco walked past Jordan Bell and offered a brief message.“Good job, Jordan,” DeMarco said. “Way to play tonight.”Such messages have been few and far between for Bell this season. In five games, he’s fallen to third in the center rotation, doing more jumping from his spot on the bench than for alley-oop finishes. Over the summer, he worked hours trying to expand his individual game, shooting …last_img read more

Geology and Anomaly Are Practically Synonyms

first_imgWhen formations don’t fit established consensus views, can secular geologists, indoctrinated into long ages and gradual change, think outside the box?Geological “laws” are made to be broken. For any principle a geology student studies at the university, he can almost count on exceptions in the field, because anomalies abound. Dates of rocks can be re-assigned. Effects can be linked to different causes. And some formations are so baffling they defy any simple explanation. Since modern secular geology is closely linked to Darwinian evolution, changes in one field often ripple across to the other. In these articles, we share recent examples of geologists changing their stories.Grand Canyon Dates Revised AgainCambrian Sixtymile Formation of Grand Canyon yields new findings (Phys.org). The venerable Grand Canyon, that textbook example of geological principles and long ages, is up for revision again. Geologists at the University of New Mexico realize this will shock some people.The Great Unconformity in Grand Canyon. In some locales, the Sixtymile Formation appears below the unconformity within the Chuar Group of inclined sedimentary layers. Creation geologist Steve Austin describes it as “composed of sedimentary breccia formed by rapid tectonic disruption and breakage of the underlying, poorly consolidated limestone and shales.” Photo by DFC.The Grand Canyon is one of the supreme geologic laboratories on Earth and, after about 140 years of geologic investigation, one might think that its secrets have been mostly resolved. This is especially true of the flat-lying layered rocks that are so visible from both rims within Grand Canyon National Park.Nearly five decades ago, in the late 1970s, was the last time a new formation was discovered and defined in the Grand Canyon with the discovery of the Surprise Canyon Formation. Now, a team of scientists, including The University of New Mexico’s Karl Karlstrom and Laura Crossey, have studied one of the last Grand Canyon strata to be dated – the Sixtymile Formation.Their research paper, recently published in Nature Geoscience, titled “Cambrian Sauk transgression in the Grand Canyon region redefined by detrital zircons”, found the Sixtymile Formation sandstone to be much younger than previously thought.In brief, the Sixtymile Formation has graduated from Precambrian to Cambrian. Once dated at 650 Ma (mill-annum, or million years), it is now 148 million years ‘younger’ than previously taught. The uncertainty figure, “508.6 ± 0.5 Ma,” seems ridiculous in light of such a drastic revision.  It’s like claiming your grade point average went from 3.95 to 2.43 ± 0.1. What’s with the 0.1? Was the GPA ever really 3.95 to begin with? The size of the revision swamps the uncertainty value.A change like that does not occur in isolation; it reassigns fossils and surrounding strata as well. The evolutionary tale has been that a wave of slow-moving water swept over several continents 540 million Darwin Years ago, bringing marine fossils over the Great Unconformity. This wave, called the Sauk Transgression (not a sin, but a moving layer of sediment over land), now has to be re-assigned to a younger age, about 505 million years ago. Anomalous zircons are the cause for the revised date. In order to prevent too much change to the story of the overlying sediments, the geologists are speeding up the wave. Flood, anyone?“Thus, flooding of the North American continent took place within a geologically short interval between 505 and 500 million years ago – more recently and much more rapidly than previously thought.“Trilobite mass death display, Wyoming Dinosaur Center (DFC)Mention the Cambrian, and you are likely to hear about one of the most embarrassing facts for Darwinism in the fossil record, the Cambrian Explosion. The new dating scheme adds to the worries for evolutionists by removing a hypothesis that the Sauk Transgression might have triggered the explosion:To this day, the Cambrian Period (541 to 485 million years ago) remains a geologic enigma: why did animal life become so globally diverse during this time; why were many continents flooded by advancing oceans in a way rarely seen before or after; and was there any relationship between these two unique features of Earth’s history?Diverse animal life was present 635 million years ago, and trilobites were making hard shells about 521 million years ago such that the new timing data in this paper do not support earlier models that have suggested that marine transgression across the Great Unconformity was a trigger for the onset of the Cambrian “explosion” in the diversity of animal life.Since the peak of the explosion is considered to be 530 to 525 million Darwin Years ago, an effect cannot precede its cause. It was a silly idea for a cause, anyway. Since when did a wave of moving sediment bring forth new animal body plans? Thinking so is the real Transgression.Anyway, evolutionists have one less just-so story to tell. Don’t worry; when one just-so story dies, two more spring up to take its place.Aerial view of Grand Canyon (DFC)To scientists and non-scientists interested in Grand Canyon geology, the paper redefines Grand Canyon’s rock layers and clarifies the age, nature, and geologically abrupt timescale of flooding of continents by oceans that took place 505-500 million years ago (Tonto Group Sauk II transgression). It shows that this event was later than and hence not the cause for diversification of early animal life but it opens new questions about the causes for early trilobite radiations and extinctions and their punctuated evolution which could they [sic] have been driven by multi-stage Sauk I and II global sea level or ocean chemistry changes.It was not for naught. The team had fun hiking in the Grand Canyon. Maybe they shared ideas for new just-so stories around the campfire.“This research, which involved an amazing group of collaborators, and the support of many graduate students, provides a marked revision of classic Grand Canyon stratigraphy by showing that the Sixtymile Formation is not Precambrian, but is middle to late-Cambrian,” said Crossey. “The rapid transgression is interpreted to have been driven by subsidence along the rifted margin and consequent abrupt sea level rise across a subsiding continent.And so now, despite being so very wrong for over 140 years, the experts tell us we can still trust them.“None of us were there to witness the changes, but the rocks provide a record of the changes, once we learn how to read them,” added Karlstrom. “Once again, Grand Canyon’s well-exposed geologic laboratory provides breakthroughs of global importance for understanding the history of our planet and the evolution of life.”They read them wrong the last time. They will probably continue to misread them. How’s that for “understanding the history of our planet and the evolution of life”?The Oxygen Just-So StorySpeaking of the Cambrian Explosion, the Geological Society of America (GSA) put forth another silly idea in a news release: changing oxygen levels creates new animal body plans. That’s right: just add oxygen, and trilobites will pop into existence. Let the power of suggestion hypnotize you: “Did extreme fluctuations in oxygen, not a gradual rise, spark the Cambrian explosion?” In your imagination, did you see a spark appear, followed by a vision of a trilobite? Meditate again till it does.Trilobites are the best-known animals from the Cambrian Explosion. Credit: Illustra MediaAsk yourself who went nuts in the story as it’s told:Five hundred and forty million years ago, during the Cambrian period, life suddenly went nuts. “Blossomed” is far too mild a word: instead, geologists call this sudden diversification an “explosion.” But what exactly sparked the Cambrian explosion?Now, a new study suggests that wild swings in oxygen levels may have sent life scrambling to adapt, leading to a major burst of diversity. That, says lead author Guangyi Wei of Yale University, challenges the long-held explanation that gradually rising oxygen simply reached a life-fueling tipping point. The study was just published online ahead of print in Geology.The Dolomite ProblemDolomite is a very common mineral, calcium magnesium carbonate, CaMg(CO3)2, occurring in crystals and in masses. Did you know it has a problem? Actually, geologists have a problem with it. A paper in PNAS tells you about it and offers hope: “Oxygen isotope composition of the Phanerozoic ocean and a possible solution to the dolomite problem.” If you thought the dolomite problem had been solved, it hadn’t.Dolomite is abundant in pre-Cenozoic strata but mostly absent from Cenozoic strata. This observation was referred to as the “dolomite problem” and has been attributed to the experimental finding that uptake of Mg2+ by Ca-carbonate minerals is kinetically limited, with a rate that depends strongly on temperature, and is prohibitively slow at average modern Earth-surface temperatures. Because marine temperatures are believed to have been higher during the Paleozoic and Mesozoic compared with the Cenozoic, cooling of marine waters and sediments are hypothesized to have driven a decrease in dolomite formation rate. This interpretation views dolomitization as an early (i.e., shallow sediment column) diagenetic process that was rapid and widespread in pre-Cenozoic marine sediments and slow and rare in Cenozoic and modern settings. The Bahamas platform is an example of a rare modern setting where locally high temperatures and salinities overcome these kinetic barriers and allow dolomite formation.The findings presented here challenge this model, as they indicate that pre-Cenozoic dolomites mostly formed at temperatures significantly higher than plausible Phanerozoic ocean water or shallow sediment column conditions and commonly grew from isotopically evolved basinal fluids rather than unmodified seawater.So on they go with a new theory. Since Murphy says that “Every solution breeds new problems,” these geologists have to tackle new questions raised by their proposal: e.g., “An open question is how Mg2+ enters these rocks in the first place.” They also have to get the rocks to undergo deep burial for a protracted time (as far as two kilometers), and then raise them up to mountain heights, like the famous Dolomites in Italy that are almost 11,000 feet high. Good luck doing that in slow-and-gradual ways. Why, then, is dolomite rare in the Cenozoic? “This finding suggests that dolomite is sparse in Cenozoic sediments not because of any peculiarity in their depositional conditions or compositions but simply because they have not yet undergone burial to deep diagenetic settings.” That hasn’t happened for 66 million Darwin Years? Sounds like special pleading to get their hypothesis to work.Anomalous Navajo Sandstone in Arizona (DFC). Secular uniformitarians say these are petrified sand dunes. Creationists see turbulent flood action. Both have the same data, but view the evidence from different worldview assumptions.People should know that geology is as full of just-so stories as Darwinism. Most people only hear about modern geology in the confident-looking displays in national parks. If the story of the greatest laboratory on earth, the Grand Canyon, is still being revised, how much more uncertain are theories about other locations? Unless we can see a process taking place before our eyes (e.g., volcanoes, floods, earthquakes) to use as analogues, the past will always be uncertain. Geologists can only piece together ideas and rule out other ideas, but they weren’t there to know. They can invent hypotheses and test some of them with lab tools like flumes, but one never knows if a model covers all the pertinent factors. That’s the advantage of having an eyewitness account. We have eyewitnesses for Creation and The Flood. We don’t have all the details, but those two “golden spikes” can prevent a lot of wasted effort. Read II Peter 3:3-6. Certainly the Biblical explanations make more sense than the “just add oxygen” idea for obtaining over 20 complex animal body plans.One-sided propaganda on Yavapai TrailGeology experienced The Great Turning Point in the 1830s, when scientists wanted to ditch the Pentateuch and go for more secular ideas. Charles Lyell led them astray with visions of slow-and-gradual processes explaining everything. His vision of the slow accumulation of small changes over millions of years, which he called uniformitarianism, profoundly influenced Darwin, his friend. Lyell became one of Darwin’s “Four Musketeers” to popularize evolution (even though Lyell had problems with natural selection’s atheistic baggage). Charlie & Charlie led geology and biology astray ever since, and only brave mavericks like Derek Ager have had the courage to doubt uniformitarianism (ICR). Nobody in the secular crowd has the courage to doubt millions of years, though, because their bosom buddies, the Darwinians, need all the time they can get. Creation geologists, loosed from the shackles of millions-of-years in the geologic column, are free to think outside Lyell’s box and entertain catastrophic processes. They publish, too, but on a separate track in their own peer-reviewed journals, like the Journal of Creation and Creation Research Society Quarterly, not because they don’t have the credentials (several have PhD’s in geology or geophysics), but because the totalitarian secular materialists refuse to publish anything that doesn’t pay homage to the Darwin idol. At least you have a choice over the same old Charlie & Charlie fare. One place where you can listen to lectures by Snelling, Austin and other creation geologists is at IsGenesisHistory.com.

Bigger, better Marakele Park

first_img2 September 2003A new enlarged Marakele National Park has been launched in Limpopo province as part of SA National Parks’ (SANParks’) programme to increase South Africa’s protected areas to 10% of land mass by 2010.The 110 000 hectare park is the result of a private-public deal, the first of its kind in the country and a potential model for future biodiversity management in SA.Marakele National Park incorporates the original Marakele park in the Waterberg Mountains in the western part of Limpopo Province, the 34 000 hectare Welgevonden private game reserve, and the 20 000 hectare Marakele contractual park owned by Dutch businessman and conservationist Paul van Vlissingen.Limpopo Premier Ngoako Ramatlhodi, speaking at the launch of the park in Thabazimbi, said the land consolidation plan would help complete the province’s “golden horseshoe” of protected areas along its northwestern, northern and northeastern boundaries.The consolidation plan was funded mainly by Van Vlissingen. The enlarged park will be run by a management company, Marakele (Pty) Ltd, set up by Van Vlissingen. The company will be responsible for the development of the park, particularly in respect of fencing, rehabilitation and the introduction of new game.According to The Citizen newspaper, SANParks will receive 4% of turnover on all commercial operations on its land, increasing to between 6% and 8% as this land is bought back. SANParks will also receive 50% of the entrance fee paid by all visitors to the contractual park.Van Vlissingen, who bought up farms in the area for twice their market price, will remain the owner of the contractual park until it is bought back by the state at the price he paid for it plus inflation.Van Vlissingen told The Citizen that he was “looking to give something back to Africa. I am not looking for wealth. I want to do something that is good for the planet and for the people”.Van Vlissingen plans to draw in private investors to build exclusive, upmarket lodges in the reserve, as well as to provide accommodation more affordable for local visitors.All fences between the parks were removed last week in terms of agreements between SANParks and the Welgevonden Land Owners Association, enabling wildlife – including elephant, white and black rhinoceros, buffalo, hyena, cheetah, wild dog, giraffe and eland – to move freely in a wider area.The Marakele also plays an important role in the conservation of the Cape vulture, with up to 900 pairs recorded there, making it the largest colony in Africa.Ramatlhodi paid tribute to Van Vlissingen and SANParks chief executive Mavuso Msimang, whose joint efforts ensured the success of the Marakele initiative, calling it a boost for tourism to the province.SANParks chairman Murphy Morobe said the Marakele project was part of his board’s ongoing expansion programme, aimed at increasing the scope of protected areas in South Africa from the current 6.5% of land volume to 10% by 2010.“A lack of finance has slowed this expansion programme, and partnerships with the private sector will therefore become increasingly important in the future,” Morobe said, adding that the agreement with Van Vlissingen could serve as a model for the establishment of new parks in the future.The launch was also attended by prominent guests, including former president Nelson Mandela and veteran conservation patron Prince Bernhard of the Netherlands.SouthAfrica.info reporter Want to use this article in your publication or on your website?See: Using SAinfo materiallast_img read more

(Image: Nelson Mandela’s Favorite African Folktales ) Superstar Carlos Santana with South African children who receive help from the Artists for a New South Africa organisation. (Image: Artists for a New South Africa)Janine ErasmusFind out more about using MediaClubSouthAfrica.com material Former president and Nobel Peace laureate Nelson Mandela has lent his name to a newly released audiobook of African folk tales. The production features some of the world’s most acclaimed actors reading beloved stories from the continent.Launched in July 2009, Nelson Mandela’s Favorite African Folktales is a project of the non-profit Los Angeles-based Artists for a New South Africa (Ansa) organisation. The beneficiaries are the thousands of children in South Africa who have been orphaned or otherwise affected by HIV and Aids.Proceeds from sales of the audiobook go to the Nelson Mandela Children’s Fund and Ansa’s It Takes a Village programme. The project helps Aids orphans and vulnerable children in South Africa by strengthening the capacity of their communities to take care of them, enabling them to remain with their families and grow up in their own environment.The list of celebrities who have given their time and talent to the project is mouth-watering, but writers, illustrators, legal and technical staff, and others have also donated their services.The voices of Oscar winners Charlize Theron, Whoopi Goldberg, Forest Whitaker, Matt Damon and Helen Mirren star alongside those of the X-Files‘ Gillian Anderson, Star Trek‘s LeVar Burton, Academy Awards 2009 host Hugh Jackman, Don Cheadle, Alan Rickman, Debra Messing, Samuel L. Jackson, Sophie Okonedo, Blair Underwood and Alfre Woodard, among many others.Woodard also directed the production. She was in London in 2008, where she met with Mandela.“He challenged us,” she said. “He told us, ‘… our work is far from complete. Where there is poverty and sickness, including Aids, where human beings are oppressed, there is more work to be done. It is in your hands now.’”Oscar nominee Jackson said, “I’ve travelled with Ansa to rural villages and met children whose lives will be changed by this audiobook. This is our way of honouring Mr Mandela, by assisting children who are the future of his nation and our world.”A special message for childrenSouth African music icons Johnny Clegg and Vusi Mahlasela composed and recorded original music for the audiobook, which was engineered by Grammy winner Gavin Lurssen. The production includes a special message to the children of the world from Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu, also a distinguished recipient of the Nobel Peace Prize.The stories were all personally chosen by the former statesman, who celebrates his 91st birthday on 18 July. Mandela has all but retired from an active public life and 67-year-long political career, but still finds time to address important issues through The Elders. This is an independent group of respected global leaders who lend their collective experience to initiatives that build peace and promote human rights.The print version was first published in 2002 and featured 32 stories from all parts of the continent. The clever snake charmer from Morocco, the Kenyan lion Simba, the Southern African mantis and the moon, the trickster-spider Anansi from Nigeria, and the Swazi cloud princess are just a few of the much-loved characters in stories so old that their exact origins are unknown.In the book’s foreword, Mandela wrote of his wish that storytelling in Africa would never die, but rather that all the world’s children might experience the wonder of books.The oral tradition of storytelling has been handed down through many generations in Africa. Now the oral tradition has gone digital and it is the hope of all involved that children all over the world will delight in and learn from the audiobook.Lending talent for a good causeArtists for a New South Africa, previously known as Artists for a Free South Africa, was established in 1989 by Alfre Woodard, Danny Glover, Mary Steenburgen, Robert Guillaume and several other artists who were involved in the anti-apartheid struggle.Over the years Ansa has received the support of many distinguished artists and humanitarians, including Archbishop Desmond Tutu, Carlos Santana, Jackson Browne, Morgan Freeman, Jonathan Butler, Johnny Clegg, George Lopez, Noah Wyle, and many more.Today the organisation focuses its efforts on combating HIV and Aids, educating and empowering people, and entrenching democracy in South Africa.It celebrates its 20th anniversary in September 2009 with the Jabulani (isiZulu, meaning rejoice) gala function in Los Angeles. Jabulani will honour struggle stalwart Ahmed Kathrada, outspoken politician Barbara Hogan and Ansa founder Woodard, and the special guest keynote speaker will be Archbishop Desmond Tutu.Do you have queries or comments about this article?
